Nodes not being created?

I am having a problem with my laptop. I had this issue with my USB stick which was fixed by manually creating nodes (discussed here http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php? … highlight=). However, upon trying other usb devices that work just fine on my desktop, I have the same result as I did with the usb stick. The nodes are not being created in /dev/ even though dmesg shows that the usb device was connected. I have a custom kernel and hotplug is NOT installed.

Any ideas on where to look with this? I have tried reinstalling udev and upgrading the kernel. Thanks for any help,

Re: Nodes not being created?

Do you have the right hotplug multiplexor?

[jvinet@pluto ~]$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug 
/sbin/udevsend

Also check out the udevmonitor program -- it should help you troubleshoot.

Thanks. It appears that it was left out of the kernel  :?

Re: Nodes not being created?

hey jskier, what exactly did you have to enable in the kernel to get it working? I am having the same problem and cannot figure it out.

Thanks. smile

First, my apology for not mentioning what I did. My laptop is in for repairs, but from what I recall I just enabled CONFIG_HOTPLUG located at General Setup >> Support for hot-pluggable devices. I use 2.6.14, so if you can't find it there it may be somewhere else for different kernel versions. Good luck!

Thanks jskier and judd! That fixed it!
That problem had been bothering me for months now. I'm very thankful that you helped me out. I was getting tired of manually creating nodes all the time.
